Day 1: Arrival and get-together at the hotel in Kathmandu
Meet and greet the other participants while enjoying a beer in the hotel gardens. Excitement and anticipation for the coming experience are in the air.
Day 2-3: Last organizations and remaining time at free disposal in Kathmandu. Those who don’t know it yet will love it. Relax in a pleasant hotel, shop or get to know the Nepalese cultural programme.
Day 4: For the time we say goodbye to Nepal and fly to Lhasa, the higest capital of the world. The centrally located hotel offers a good starting Point to explore the city and get a taste of Tibetan air for the first time.
Day 5: Lhasa. Even today there is still time to admire the former residence of the Dalai Lama and the countless monasteries and temples of the City, some of which have been declared a UNESCO-World-Heritage-Site or a bowl of butter tea to observe the everyday life of the Tibetans.
Day 6: Drive towards Shigatse. Today we leave Lhasa and head south to Shigatse, the second largest city in Tibet. On the way we marvel at the barren Beauty of the Tibetan Highlands, which alone would be worth a trip. There is still time for an acclimatisation hike to a nearby monastery.
Days 7: Drive to Tingri at 4.300m. The accomodation is again very simple, the Food is still very good! In the afternoon there will be another acclimatization hike, having good weather with a view of the eight-thousander Cho Oyu.
Day 8: Rest day. For acclimatization we have a rest day. Also here there are beautiful 5000m high hills for hiking. One is amazed at the flocks of sheep with their sheperds, because here the landscape is even more barren.
Day 9: We leave for the Everest Basecamp (Paddock) at 5200m.
